Footnotes

  • PROVENANCE:
    Private collection, New York

    The Singing Bridge received its peculiar name due to the sound tires made when cars drove across its steel grate deck. In colorful and fluid watercolors, Paul Sawyier captures a glimpse of the bridge as it crosses over the Kentucky River into Frankfurt, KY. From above the canopy of trees, the United States Courthouse and the dome of the Post Office are visible. The highest landmark rising over Frankfort's modest skyline is the tall, elegant steeple of the Church of the Good Shepherd.
